“You Deserve It” With Former Amway Diamond Carole Holiday
Her son, K.C. Holiday was a contestant on the game show whose tagline is, “It’s better to give than to receive.” K.C. is on the show to win money for her mother, whose story was described as follows:
- Grew up in Southern California
- Got married at 21
- Worked as a dental hygienist
- Got divorced 18 months ago after 32 years of marriage
- She loses her job a few days after the divorce
- Her lease coming up and no place to go
- She asks her son, “What do I do?”
- Carole discovers she has a heart condition
- She doesn’t have the money to treat her heart condition
Divorce. No home. Medical problems. Does this sound like the lifestyle of an Amway Diamond?
The television show omitted the fact for years, Carole and her former husband, Craig Holiday1, were Diamonds in Amway. They began their Amway career in 1979 and were “recognized” as Diamonds on-stage throughout the 1990’s. I know this because the Holidays were in my extended upline in INA. Sometime after “retiring” from the business, they set up their own cooking school called “Our House South County” in the 2000’s.
Clearly, Carole has fallen on tough times, and I hope that the money will go to treat her heart condition.
I hope, however, that her story shows that Diamonds aren’t always forever in the world of Amway and MLM’s. The myth that once you make Diamond, you’re set for life, is just that, a myth. More often than not, it becomes another job, one that you have to work very hard in which to maintain your position.
Here’s a clip from the show taken from Carole’s family. You can watch the full episode of You Deserve It here:
Readers, what lessons have we learned from watching K.C. win big money for his former Diamond mother, Carole, on You Deserve It?
1 Craig Holiday runs a coaching and mentorship business at craigholiday.net. He says in his about page that he built his “income quickly to over $1M per year”. Where did all that money go?
